Integrate the Different Aspects of Your Psyche & Develop a Centred Space for Making Real Choices

Voice Dialogue and the Psychology of Selves enables you to recognise, understand and embrace the selves (the most discrete units of the psyche) that make up who you are.

Voice Dialogue in Daily Life

When you realise you've become over-identified with one or some parts of yourself (such as the Pleaser, Rational Mind, Psychological Knower, Pusher, Critic, Lazy Self, Rebel), and you've suppressed or simply aren't aware of other parts (maybe your Vulnerable Inner Child, Selfishness, Being Energy, Spontaneous Self, Playful Self, the Romantic), you open the door to new choices and experiences, growth and healing.

What is Voice Dialogue?

Developed by pioneering psychologists Dr Hal Stone and Dr Sidra Stone, Voice Dialogue is a method for giving voice to our various selves – also referred to as ‘inner selves’, ‘parts’ and ‘energy patterns’, and include archetypes. 

Your selves might include a Knowledge Seeker, Pleaser, Responsible Parent, Rational Mind, Inner Critic, Perfectionist, Vulnerable Child, Playful Child, Rebel, Spiritual Seeker, Couch Potato, Adventurer, Romantic, Good MotherCaring Father, Angry Mother or Father, Anxious Child or any other self you can imagine.

Voice Dialogue Inner selves examples

The process of connecting with, embodying and directly dialoguing with our selves allows us to realise which selves we've become identified with, why those selves took charge and how they keep us safe, and then which aspects of ourselves have been rejected or hidden.

Through the Voice Dialogue process we gain understanding and acceptance of our-selves. As our awareness grows of how we've come to identify with particular aspects of our psyche, we begin to make space for our rejected selves and the gifts they have for us. 

This process, which involves embracing opposite selves, along with their conflicting perspectives and feelings, leads to growth in consciousness.

It results in the actualisation or restoration of balance and harmony, with a connection to a centre within ourselves from where we can manage the array of selves / energy patterns that inhabit us. 

And when we see how our selves influence our relationships, then we can solve all kinds of relationship and parenting problems, allowing us to feel more love, connection and growth in our life and relationships.

This work is deeply transformative and healing, and can be used together with any other modality or practice that promotes self-awareness and consciousness.

      Hi Coly – to be added to the mail list you will need to fill in the subscription form on my site (the form appears on most pages). I’m unable to add you manually because it is an automated process.
      Thank you,

  2. Hello,
    Your site was recommended to me by a friend who works with Voice Dialogue an I am interested in learning more. I signed up for your free download, but did not receive an email confirmation. My experience with email confirmations is that they usually are almost “automatic,” in that they happen almost instantaneously after signing up. I just wondered if there’s a problem from my end, or maybe yours.
    Many thanks for your response.

      Hi Judy – can you remember which form, on which page, you signed up on? That would make it easier to check if there’s a mistake in the settings for that type of form.

    1. Author

      Hi Judy – I’ve tested the form and it works for me, and I’m getting notifications daily that other people are downloading the ebook, so I don’t know what the problem might be. You should receive a ‘Confirm your request’ email as soon as you submit the form. Maybe check your junk and spam folders in case that’s where it’s going?

  3. Wow Astra. You made some kind of magic happen! I completed the form again, immediately got an email confirmation, confirmed on your site and voila!! the ebook arrived.
    Thank you so much. Who knows what happened previously, but something changed and we’re connected. I look forward to reading the book and to your newsletters.
    Many thanks,

    That’s great! I hope you enjoy the ebook. There’s also plenty of information throughout my website. I hope you gain something of value from it all.
    Kind regards,

  5. Astra,

    Thank you for the writing and information you’ve created and shared. It’s come at a time when I most need it. I look forward to learning more over time as I read more and hope to heal. It wasn’t until I shut down social media that I began to truly understand how empty I’ve become.

    In any case. Thank you.

  6. Hi Astra,
    Do you offer VD sessions on a 1 on 1 basis? I am interested in have a session to help with some areas in my live.

    I am away of VD and have used it within my own life to a certain point however I need some more support to dig a bit deeper.

    Thank you for your consideration.

      Hi Carmel – sorry for taking so long to reply. At the moment I’m not seeing any clients but might start up again this year. I can let you know when I do. In the meantime, there’s a list of facilitators worldwide here: I’d suggest going through some of the profiles to see who you might like to work with. Many facilitators now offer sessions online so you can work with someone from just about anywhere.

      All the best and kind regards,
